Eat your words, Miranda Priestly. The Devil Wears Prada boss just might take back her oft-repeated, sarcastic statement after seeing the blooming beauty look from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s spring 2017 show.
When models hit the London Fashion Week catwalk with flowers stuck on their faces and décolletages, we all witnessed just how groundbreaking the cliché can be.
Both natives of Britain’s Isle of Man, designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi took inspiration from witchcraft, which is commonplace in their home state.
Makeup artist Val Garland used daises, rose petals, cornflowers, ferns and forget-me-nots to echo the magical nature theme.
Garland applied dried and pressed flowers onto models’ cheeks, foreheads, chins, lips, necks and shoulders. There was barely any makeup used: just moisturizer for a dewy complexion and eyelash glue to hold the petals in place.
WE DON’T THINK SO, MIRANDA!
We’re betting this fresh floral look will hit the festival circuit next summer, and finally boot out flower crowns, which, quite frankly, we’re totally over.
